This day in NZ history, in 1964 Peter Snell won a second gold medal in Tokyo. He remains the only man since 1920 to have won the 800m and the 1500m at the same Olympic Games.
In 2008 on this day stolen medals were returned to the National Army Museum. The 96 medals, including nine Victoria Crosses, two George Crosses and an Albert Medal, had been stolen from the Waiouru museum early on the morning of 2 December 2007.
In world history on this day, in 1879, after 14 months of testing,Thomas Edison first demonstrated his electric lamp, hoping to one day compete with gaslight.

In 1994 North Korea and the US signed an agreement requiring North Korea to halt its nuclear weapons program and agree to international inspections.
Our quote for today is from Roy T. Bennett who said “Be with someone who inspires you and makes you be the best version of yourself.”
